Silent Hill Homecoming coming to PC, brings delay

Silent Hill Homecoming

Konami announced today that their fifth installment to the Silent Hill franchise, Silent Hill Homecoming, will not only be available on PS3 and 360 on day one, but on PC as well. Homecoming, which is being handled by the newly formed western developer Double Helix, will be made available through the Steam digital distribution service. This announcement has lead some to speculate that this is reason behind the delay in the game’s release from September to sometime in November.

With the amount of change that the Silent Hill game mechanics are undergoing this announcement doesn’t come as too big of a surprise. Developer Double Helix has already expressed their intent to maintain the disturbing ascetic of the previous games, while simultaneously revamping the game’s combat controls to reflect the main character’s combat experience. And after five other very similar titles, perhaps a little change won’t be such a bad thing.

EDIT 1: OH SNAP! As reported by 1UP, Tomm Hulett, Silent Hill Homecoming‘s producer, is confirming that the game’s release date is still set for September 30th in North America. The November release date only applies for the European release.

    Maxwell has been a gaming enthusiast since the days of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Genesis. While currently an advertising major, he has high hopes of writing professionally about this digital time waster we love so much. He considers himself an easy going guy and will try just about anything with an open mind. Most of his gaming time is split between the PC and 360, though he does enjoy all of the major consoles. His favorite genre would be either fighters or turn-based strategy titles, while conversely harboring a dislike for most MMORPGs.
